plain washington, dc. i can explain, now, the folks would make them look very small, the heroes, actually, who brought us to the moon and did the impossible, remember now, 40 years after that last mission to the moon surface that anything is possible. i don't want to give away our sunday night "fly me to the moon" special but i want to give you a teaser, what made them so special. >> we are not thinking about what goes wrong, worry is a wasted emotion. it clouds clear thinking that is absolutely needed when something is wrong. >> i didn't have guts i knew what i was doing. i didn't go to the moon not to come back. >>neil: did you think you might die? >> we thought our chances were about 10 percent. >>neil: did you hear that? 10 percent. one out of ten chance of coming out that disaster alive. that was then. this is now. amazing. folks in washington, dc, could take a cue from these guys. to our market watcher. i don't see that bravery today. but it is what it is. >>guest: it is nowhere to be found. maybe the chance of that 40 years ago is 10 percent and the chance of the fiscal c
is the sentiment like? are people aware what is going on in washington, dc? are they upbeat? downbeat? unaffected? disaffected? what is the sense? >>reporter: it is an interesting year and the new year's eve ball takes on a different level of importance this year. we are right near times square, the crossroads of the world, right, where main street meets washington, dc, meets wall street street and it comes together and you can get a great feel of how real people, the average american, the average global citizen, reacts to things that are if many ways not only confusing and difficult to understand but uncertain so we caught up with them today. take a listen of everything they had to say how it is personal if some and how it will affect their paychecks and spending in the new year. >> it is everyone to blame. the congress needs to get their act together. that is my we opinion. >> we need spending cuts. >> spending cuts. >> that is not happening. >> everyone makes promises on both sides and no one has fulfilled the promises. >> it will affect everything including quality of life. >> both a mess. >>
rogers. >>guest: the worst thing going on in washington is all of the talk about the issue. you pick up a newspaper and it says would will blink first? who will be pulled across the line first? members read those and they are thinking, i don't want to be categorized as blinking. >>neil: but you just contributed saying you better not talk the entitlements or talk about social security or medicare and i know you may have your reasons but the republicans are saying, we have to give our pound of flesh and raise taxes and we are fine with it. we will do it. never mine the fact that you democrats have doubled the amount of revenues you talked about before the election, so be it. but there is nothing coming from you guys. >>guest: here is one of the things that we have been pushing. that is, according to the c.b.o. if the bush era tax cuts are eliminated, they would generate $950 billion over 10 years. that is just shy of the $1.2 trillion that we laid out in the sequester bill. so, we are moving in the right direction and we are dealing with the whole issue of medicare. >>neil: you are not. y
the word to apply to anybody who wants to do business as usual in washington. it is lunacy what we were doing. it is like you were talking about. we shouldn't be taking a break. i loved your flat tax. you said fair tax, flat tax, but there are some basic principals, and i love the points you laid out, neil. those are the things that we ought to be doing. >> i do what i can. congressman i am not there in the seat of power like you. i am a prompter reader. i become super when i put the costumes on. can we show that animation again? that's what i look like when i put it on. enough about me. back to what you are going to do to help me and advance this cause of settling and bridging this gap. i don't know what it is with you guys, but you just can't do it. what is the problem? >> it shouldn't be. every time we have leverage in the house we give it away. and you are right. the important issue here is the spending. we've got the debt ceiling. we've got even republican leaders saying maybe we ought to give our leverage and our constitutional control of spending to the president. confidently the
will be nervous and that could be good if the markets started silling off to send washington a message, you are messing with the economy and playing games and playing chicken with the economy. i'm concerned if we get a deal the market will sell off because it will be tax hikes, it will be spending cuts, nothing to promote growth. >>neil: but there is a danger to doing a deal when you think the markets will like it if you score, even a bad deal. i remember when tarp was rejected under the bush administration we felt, we saw the market drop 770 points. and the argument was get back and maybe the markets will not fall, and then two months later we were down 4,000 points from that level so whatever panic attack you fear that is a slow bleed, anyway. >> we seeing our markets underperform global markets and have gone sideways since the election and we had a sell off and now they have involved that and are moving sideways. if they bring a deal that is all just a deal that is all fluff and no real circumstance. what we will see is a market that sells off. there is an old adage on wall street, buy t
concerned? >>guest: that is right. with washington, politicians are leaving early and their job is not done this is a concern, a concern because it sends a bad message to the american people and the timing could not be worst. this is just ahead of super saturday, the second biggest shopping day of the year, ahead of time is short as you know, we are close to the end of the year and we are staring at gun of our biggest tax increase in american history and this is dangerous times and they go on vacation? what message is that sending to the american people who work hard, are told when you get ahead in the country you get to work early and stay late and get the job done. they didn't get that memo in washington. >>neil: they did not, and you are more aggressive than my tip number one as a super hero. melissa, coughing this last night, do they realize the gravity of this, a vote being canceled, fine. but you have to get back and do smith. >>guest: they could not -- what i win, when they went on vacation, could they stop spending while they are on vacation? why does the register keep ticking along
back to washington, d.c.? maybe for a vote. are they going to be able to? >> that's a big question and it's unknown. this is a big storm and it hasn't even had the full impact in d.c. and new york. and it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better. like you said, there's winds that are looking like 40, 50 miles an hour hitting new york soon and they're seeing tremendous delays. the good news is this isn't the kind of storm that leaves multiple feet of snow and blankets runways and ice. we don't see days and days of cancelingations like past winter storms. some of the delays that they're experiencing in the northeast are just a cascading delay from indianapolis, chicago, dallas. the brunt of the storm hasn't hit the northeast yet. >> chicago, newark, houston, but the effects are -- can be across the whole united states, right? >> that's right. it's going to hit around the evening rush in new york and then continue on for the evening. so there's already been 2400 flights that have arrived over 15 minutes late. over 1,045 minutes late. that's cascading more delays through the da
. that is incredible. not right. >>guest: it is not right. when i saw that, cuomo is coming to washington, and you showed the capitol you should have dollar bills coming out of the window because when the governors come to washington they want money with their palms up. that is what governor cuomo wants. he wants the federal government to write a big check to the state. we found with katrina, of the $140 billion, according to independent government auditors, there was rampant corruption and fraud and no bid contracts that went to cronies and we estimate that somewhere between 20 percent to 25 percent to 30 percent of the money was wasted on fraudulent contracts. it didn't helps victims. a lot of people got rich but it wasn't the people who lost their homes. >>neil: you can see money for a variety of purposes, the money coming in, helping the victims, helping sandy victims now, but it goes through a variety of nefarious purposes and could fill a hole in the budget. where is the backup to look at making sure this money is going for the pups to which it is intended? >>guest: this is the frustration a
a cliff or something or maybe washington is just horrible. maybe. >>neil: son of a...the rating agencies says the way these guys are dilly-dallying on the cliff, we still could see our credit rating take a dive. deal or though deal? welcome, everyone, i am neil cavuto. i think that was the way of telling washington quit playing us for fools and thinking this finger pointing is winning you friends. it is costing your country. leaving aside a major credit rating calling the politician's bluff did this hint if they come up with a keel that is stupid this will be hell? charles payne says that downgrade could be coming no matter what. warm, -- charles, what will happen? >>guest: the debt ceiling debate, july 29, they come up with an agreement and the president signs it august 2, and we are downgraded after the president signed. the deal was signed and it was done, they point to a lack of faith in the leaders and in washington, dc. they are saying the same thing. when i read that, and the quote is deficit cutting plan, you mention playing us as fools, we they just give it or wink sore say, guy
.m. and we'll come back to washington, d.c. sunday evening, 6:30 p.m., no later than. >> let's talk about the senate minority leader, mcdonnell, saying hopefully there's time to get this fixed. is there time? >> i think there is. you know, we have done our business in the house of representatives. we have sent a bill to the senate which says we will keep all these tax rates where they are and the senate must act on that bill. that election. -- legislation. we don't need to talk about people getting together in a room to come up with a deal. we need to do that which is pragmatic and keep the money in the pockets of the american people. right now the spending problem we have in washington, d.c. is affecting this country. we have not had a budget passed by the senate in the last three or four yours. we're telling the american people they have to tighten their bootstraps but we do not want to do that in washington, d.c. we have a federal reserve printing more money to the tune of $45 billion a month to buy up treasury bonds, which is a failed monetary policy which shows this economy is not on
young, he went to washington, dc and he came back home with bacon. that is what you do. that is what you do. this is, our people, in an overwhelming way, supported the re-election of this president and there ought to be quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that. of course, not just that but why not? earthquake egg she was calling for a bailout of 9 cash strapped city after 73 percent of the voters in wayne pulled the lever for president obama in november. the video is going viral and so is the reaction. we cannot get the council woman but we got michelle fields who says get ready for more. the absolute stark contrast between scott who we saw on staten island standing if front of his home making sure no one steals his generators so he can stay warm and this council woman who is concerned about, she voted for president obama, where is her bailout? >>guest: this is crazy. you don't get preferential treatment just because you voted for obama. look, detroit right now, what they need is real new leadership. what they don't need is more money going to politicians who are complet
. whatever the effect on young people, it has not moved the needle in washington, are you worried they do not strike a deal of any sort? >>guest: i remain more concerned than my buddy, erskine. when you have this undertow that if the democrats get an advantage if we go off the cliff or the republicans gain the advantage, that is wrong because you say you value the party over the country. it is time to step to the plate for your country, your country need as tough vote. >>neil: some say you do thought need tax hikes versus spending cuts and a bad deal is worse than no deal. what do you say? >>guest: well, i agree with john, it is hard to believe that. but one thing i will bet you a lot of bucks if they go over the cliff or half a cliff which is hard to do, the markets will respond anyway and the guy that is hurt is the little guy the when inflation kicks in, and enters go up, guess who is hurt? the money guys always take care of themselves. the little guy. the middle class. everyone babbling about that person all day and all night. those are the guys that will be hammered if you just go in
down if at all. >>guest: it is quite obvious to anyone that studies the matter, washington has a spending problem. not a revenue problem. if you look at raiding taxes on millionaires, president obama campaigned on increasing taxes on the millionaires and billionaires so now if you make $200,000 you are a millionaire or a billionaire. even if you do that the revenue you gain if that is not going to get us out of the problems. so here in the real world there is not a lot hope that anything that reaches, comes close to sanity will take place in washington. >>neil: what do you think of the vote among the republican caucus on the tax hikes, to millionaires in this case? anyone who votes for that, do you remember or do you vow retribution? >>guest: the feeling with most tea party members across country, there are 43 million of us, the only people that like us less than the democrats are the republicans. we say what boehner did with the committee chairs that held fast to tea party principles. in 2014, look, i was here after boehner was elected speaker in 2010 when the republicans retu
of the provely gacy over the years in washington, d.c. when they say cut spending, mean it. >> mean it. >> efficient the fiscal cliff, it should be called the obama cliff and swan dive over it. good idea or bad idea? >> yeah. i think that would be part of accepting all the consequences and letting the chips fall where they need to fall. but i think what the house republicans need to do especially, knowing that they had whatever mandate they did have after the election, house to be the opposition party, to stand for core limited government principles and not sell us down the river. particularly all the small business operators and entrepreneurs trying']jñ to kep their head above water. >> thank you very much. have great weekend. >> you too. >>> we have senate minority leader mitch mcconnell existing the meeting now. we're going to keep our eye out and hopefully one of these guys comes to a camera. in the watch it. former president george bush bush remains in intensive care but good news regarding his condition. we'll have the latest from outside his houston hospital coming up next. sh

, well, maybe that doesn't sound so bad. if you on the "washington post" page ten you sigh social media sites, all abuzz if there is a reason to monetize social media, it is that the world is not ending tomorrow, and all kinds of nightclubs are hosting all sorts of end of the world themed parties tonight and tomorrow and you can see this flurry of advertising, a flurry of spending, and retailers love to have an event to real us in by valentine's day. we are used to it. it is a great idea for the advertisers to pin their hopes on something that could be as devastating as the end of the world. there could seriously be backlash to taking advantage of our fores. >>neil: but that hasn't hurt the guys that build the bunkers or folks that provide food that will last a couple of decades and twinkies could be a rage. >> they have moved from the fringe from obscurity, everyone has been -- there is a joe on tv that tracks their move and everything they store up, items if four years, antibiotics, and food this cans and water, but seriously, the blast couple of weeks, there have been so many things
